    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Life is just a great big cheater

    One does the best one can with life and in the end it just cheats you out of everything. I feel so bad for this old dude and all of us that are slowly heading in the same direction. Life truly is a *****. That's all I've got to say about that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTpXI30KLLM
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    All I can say is that it seemed like a nice tribute the old guys wife.
    "Normal" is just a setting on a washing machine.

    He's pretty lucky really. To have had such a great love. Few of us achieve it.

    It's also good that he's working through the grief this way. I had a neighbor about that age. He and his wife had been married since their early 20's. He proposed to her on the first date. When she died, he went downhill and didn't survive a month.

    Everyone has to give everything up one day.

    I agree.

    We all know life will end sometime; enjoy it while you can. If you have someone to special to share it with, all the better.

    Honest feeling and sentiment, a fine ballad. Not new -- but what is, anymore?

    I see it more as a testament to the older man living his life right, that he has these memories. Seems his ONLY regret is that she's not still there WITH him for more.....

    So, "life's a b**** and then you die"? I'd say his life was pretty good, he made the most of it -- and what worth would those moments have if they lived forever?

    When you look back on your life, and you see where you've been, you either:

    appreciate the good things that came your way, or
    appreciate that you survived the bad things without them tainting your life. THEN, you have lived a good life.

    I've looked back a fair bit recently, and some days, it seems I've wasted more than a couple years; but I can't get them back to live over, I can only make NOW good. And NOW is pretty good. I LOVE riding the bike, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my kids, and I love that I finally have a handle on my life, instead of fulfilling someone else's ticket-punch expectations.
